First-year 5K run benefits Good Cheer, dogs

Join the inaugural “PAWZ by the SEA 5K Run/Walk,” benefiting the Good Cheer Pet Food Bank and the deserving young people of the Happy Hounds 4-H Dog Club.

The race is Sunday, Sept. 29 starting with registration and packet pick-up at 7:30 a.m. The race begins at 9 with the children’s run at 10:30 a.m. Registration costs $25 for adults and $15 for children.

The course allows participants to run or walk with their dogs through Langley, around its surrounding county neighborhoods and back along the bluff overlooking Saratoga Passage. There is a shorter course available for kids.

Once finished, there will be festivities associated with an open house at the Animal Hospital by the Sea with prizes, goodie bags, food and fun. Volunteers are needed to organize and care for the entrants as they make their way around the course.

To register or for more information, call Animal Hospital by the Sea at 360-331-8090 or visit www.animalhospitalbythesea.com/events for an entry form.

Register early or the day of the race before 8:30 a.m.
